I recently downgraded from windows vista ultimate to windows xp, but I cannot find the video, audio, and wifi-internet drivers. If anyone can help me that would be great. Thanks in advance.

Hi VenomRx
Have you tried the Let HP recommend option at your link as there may be Vista/Xp compatible drivers available?

I could not see any information regarding whether there is a cost for the downloads so be careful; http://www.driversto...ows-xp-vista-7/

Where are you checking, the Device Manager?
Try http://www.innovativ....com/drivermax/ you are allowed to download two drivers a day for free, don`t forget to uninstall the old before installing the new drivers.
